Music has the power to transform, inspire, move and motivate us both as individuals and groups. For centuries people have used drumming to release stress, raise their spirits, enhance clarity and focus, and develop a culture of co-operation and community.
In Africa, whenever communities want to mark an occasion, or draw others near, whether for births, initiations, funerals or celebrations, drums can be heard in the distance. The effect of drumming is a synchronization of energy, a unity and common purpose. Drum Café brings this powerful African technique to the modern boardrooms and offers the possibility of participating in an event that promotes the power of communication, synergy, harmony and team building.
The Drum Café is a unique and exciting way to get your employee involved and energized. Talented Djembe drummers, master facilitators and musicians provide each delegate with a genuine Djembe drum made in West Africa drum to use for the event. Drum Café then transforms a company, division or work team into a drumming orchestra teaching participants to listen to one another and to make music together. The non-verbal communication of drumming provides a powerful, unifying message, which transcends language, gender, and culture and age barriers.
